tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News August 30, 2019 7:00pm-8:00pm PDT
continuing coverage on fox news. it's coming up on the coast. don't mess around with this storm. watch fox news. "the ingraham angle" is next. have a great labor day weekend. >> ♪ >> ♪ >> laura: i am laura ingraham from washington tonight. we will show you some of the most creative media excuses for that damning ig-reporter on jim comey. john will unpack all of it. after saying he would not comment on a sitting president mattis is doing just that. this is a preach of the military code and raymond is here twice. first in follies and examines
why elite are trying to shut down david's politically uncorrect special and we had him on the road in california. it's unreal this is happening in the united states of america. first, you would think that lacerating a inspector general report on jim comey would be big news. it is. a huge abuse of power. violating the department norms. much of the media just stuck their hands in the sand regarding the true take away. this is the same press that took every little whiff of trouble for president trump and inflated it. to prove our point we will look at what major media figures were
obsessing on a year ago and what happened since. here's msnbc's ratings queen. >> the president's business is also implicated in the commission of felonies according to the criminal information filed in court with michael cohen's guilty plea. >> laura: that led to nothing. cohen is the only one who ended up in jail. prosecutors declined to go after trump's businesses. then, there was the beginning of the impeachment fantasy. here's larry o'donnell last year. >> we learned from the "washington post" 24 hours ago, trump has consulted his personal attorneys about the likelihood of impeachment proceedings. >> laura: one year later, impeachment still looks unlikely. giving his false reporting this week o'donnell hasn't learned
his lesson. let's see what cnn was up to last year. here's don lemon. >> the president telling bloomberg news he views the mueller probe as an illegal investigation. is this president on edge right now? >> laura: i forgot the walls are closing in narr stiff. -- narrative. that's really, really fun. donald trump is paranoid in his office. and this was chris cuomo interviewing everyone's favorite tru trump foil. >> david pecker and all of the stuff. let's bring in the attorney for stormy daniels michael avanati. >> laura: as we know, michael avanati is facing embezzlement charges but he needs more time for his lawyers to prepare his
case. he said that yesterday. those issue the kinds of nothing burgers that the media obsessed on for a year plus. meanwhile, what has president trump accomplished over the last year? delivering for the american people. he accomplished true criminal justice reform. negotiated the usmca to replace nafta and now congress has to do its nob. -- job. trump got mexico to crackdown on illegal immigrantsion. and unemployment is at near record lows. joining me now jeffrey, a former cnn contributor. president of the independent women's forum and fox news contributor. the media jumps on any story
that could be one source told me stories that could be damaging to trump. but they ignore this bombshell that comey had his whole team ready to debrief him after he went into the trump tower meeting in january of 2017? that's not a story at all. >> no. of course, we just knew this would happen here. they are the cable liberal narrative network. they won't apologize for it. they are out there to borrow a phrase i saw from don lemon: propaganda and lies. they got this story wrong time after time. they won't apologize for it. they won't say they are wrong. they will ignore now that all of this is coming out. this is unbelievable here.
i think it will help president trump in the election. he will make this an issue. the american people will get it. >> laura: we had so much fun going back and picking a day from a year ago about what they were talking about. it is something. we were talking about how we will have increased growth. trump will try to do trade deals and avoid getting into another war. we were pretty accurate. they were swinging and missing, tammy, on almost every major story that they were freaking out. >> it's the equivalent of fan fiction. >> laura: good point. >> the problem is reality interrupts that. it's not as fun to have real life. there was not legacy media these ideas would be on a street
corner mumbling i am the king of prosia. that's what these individuals do. the legacy media is a legacy for a reason. these are important institutions in american life. the "new york times" and the broadcast networks. these fools have not just made fools of themselves but destroyed the nature of their own business and the important legacy outlets that the american people rely on. we can enjoy fan fiction. every year you will be able to do this. >> laura: yes. 50 years ago today. 1 year ago today. we could do one week ago. we played what they said a year ago. here's the stories on msnbc the prime-time host thought deserved top billing last night as the
ig-report was coming out. >> in 1949 the soviet union was the second country with nuclear weapons and 3 weeks ago today a nuclear accident killed 5 russian scientists. >> do you remember when vice-president dick cheney accidentally shot a guy in the face? do you remember when that happened? >> laura: we got the ig-report out yesterday and it's back to the cheney and i am surprised they didn't throw in haliburton. are these people seriously? >> oh, i am so looking forward to the next year and what is left of this year. these people, more and more, as we get more ig-reports about what happened with the deep
state and the fbi and all of this thing, these people will be put in an impossible position of just ignoring major news. they will look like fools. frankly they can't help themselves. they are not news. they are narratives. >> laura: these vaunted institution, maybe if they actually did their job, the fake news would not resonate with anybody. it's resonating because they are doing stories about sea otter health last night. media hacks were spinning the comey report. let's bring in john yu. great to see you. i want to begin with this from cnn's legal analyst. >> what i think we should not
lose sight of is none of this is any indication for donald trump. it doesn't change anything about what comey was writing about in those memos which was donald trump demanding loyalty of him and trying to get him to shut down the investigation. those are still obstructive act. today's finding on comey has nothing to do with clearing trump. >> laura: how did he turn the ig-report slamming comey and turn it into trump is not vindicated? >> i am sad to say after i read the ig-report. trump didn't obstruct justice. he freed the justice department of a man who rejected our constitution and democracy. he decide the normal basic rules of the justice department did not apply to him in his crusade
to top president trump. we don't freely share the results of confidential investigations with the "new york times" or the press to attack people we don't like. we keep those things confidential to pursue successful investigations. in jim comey was a normal justice department prosecutor or a lying fbi agent he would have been fired on the spot. >> laura: no question. here's msnbc's legal analyst's take. >> people talking to former justice department employees, they say horowits is missing the pint. it's like punishing someone speeding to put out a fire.
>> this is ridiculous. he should have never been the fbi director. he took 2 years of bob mueller to find out the whole thing was groundless. jim comey because he did not like donald trump, broke all of the rules. it's not just like speeding. these are the basic rules that govern the justice department. what did we get in exchange? 2 years of wasted time and effort and the cost of the mueller report to our system. it's been a disaster for the country. >> laura: john, the host of "hard ball," chris matthews. >> they leaked stuff to churchill about the military build-up of the germans. sometimes there is a justifiable
cause. >> laura: churchill and hitler. >> i can't even tell what he is talking about. the real problem is jim comey and not donald trump. this ig-report is a damning indictment of someone who was an fbi director and created many abuses that hoover did against martin luther king. spreading information to damage and harm people when he was not going to prosecute him. this is a guy who should never had been -- i have to say after reading the ig-report. one of the most important things donald trump did and the best thing for the country was to fire jim comey. >> laura: john. thank you very much. i want to go to the 2020 political scene. two of the top contenders joe biden and elizabeth warren are making headlines for different reasons. warren is gaining momentum.
her crowd sizes are attracting attention. a new poll has her up 9 points over biden. biden is under fire for his g f gaffes and a war story that never happened. frank, i want to get your reaction to media members playing defense still for biden. >> the theme of the story may be right, but he didn't get the details right. >> so what? >> it's not like he made up something in a malicious way. >> he got the story wrong and needs to say my heart is in the right place. he was making a point and the story fit his point. >> i watched this and it's tragic. i understand it's for some people's entertainment but test of it isso serious. we celebrate -- labor day
weekend and where is the personal responsibility? where are people doing their jobs? the media has a solemn responsibility to report the facts and the information and not allow their own personal biases to get in the way. not protecting candidates as they did with joe biden or damning candidates as they did with donald trump. we suffer as a result. there is a reason why the american people have less faith and trust in the american people since we have been alive. >> laura: for the last 3 decades. >> we have the lowest unemployment rate. we have wages going up. every piece of information. i recognize that the issue is controversial. the economy is strong. >> laura: and all of the predictions about getting tough on trade will destroy the u.s. economy.
there is no inflation. we have a strong economy. no risk of recession over the next couple of years. >> and the people that have been helped the most are people who do not help for donald trump. youngest voters and african-americans and latinos. they have benefitted from the economy but you never hear about that. >> laura: and i want to shoe biden's most significant issue with memory this week. >> because they invaded another country. [inaudible]. he was saying it was my boss's fault. >> laura: people said he could not remember obama's name. now they are seizing on him. a friend of mine didn't like some of the criticism of biden and she is a big trump fan. she said this makes me feel like no one can get a break here. or is this fair?
you will be president of the united states or you want to be. you have to be at the top of your game. >> when you have 5 different speeches a day and flying across the country you will make mistakes. we are not perfect. you expect people to tell the truth and say things that are significant for individuals. but biden, he needs a better debate coach. >> laura: next one is? >> september 12th in houston on abc and joe biden will be next to elizabeth warren, and harris one person over. he better be sharper than he has been and he better be prepared that they will challenge and try to take him down. >> laura: frank, nice to see you. coming up resistance on twitter to mattis.
republicans that soon more establishment republicans would speak out. it sounds like jim mattis is doing that. >> this is a warning. this is not simply an interesting story but a warning. it's time for 2020. >> laura: he said the iraq war would last 2 or 3 months. okay? sitting among the first thoughts we heard on that new jim mattis book was from bill crystal who is always wrong and never in doubt. the anti-trump zealots were referring to this passage where mattis is writing using every skill i learned during by decades as a marine i did as well as i could for as long as is i could. joining me now is daniel davis
and retired army colonel doug mcgregor. what is mattis really trying to do here other than sell his book? >> he is trying to convince the audience he is a heorric figure. it's a tough sell. for 2 years in the administration he did everything to subvert the president. now he is discussing things he talked to the president in confidence about. he is trying to emphasize his courage and devotion. where was that for 18 years of self-defeating warfare that cost trillion dollars and thousands of lives and accomplished nothing. if anything we have more enemies. >> laura: i want to get back to the issue of the funding of the wars. i want to say this, colonel davis, he claims to be
old-fashioned. put up this excerpt from the book. i want to pass on the lessons and experiences that prepared me... >> it sounds like precisely what he is doing. that's not surprising at all. he is the absolute embodiment of establishment washington. he puts on a good face and looks good doing it. when you look at his term as secretary of defense, he really worked hard to keep the status quo in advance and not do anything outside. he didn't want to change anything from the status quo which undercut president trump. he wanted to do a lot of things that made sense. he wanted to get out of syria and get out of afghanistan. he was thwarted in both of
those. that's something that will be his real legacy. he thwarted the president at every step. >> laura: this goes back to the original appointment of mattis. it was a mistake. trump should not have appointed someone who disagreed with his fundamental outlook. >> more important, jim mattis who obviously was a clinton supporter, had not voted for donald trump. >> laura: right. that's a given. >> he had an obligation to tell the president, i appreciate the offer and i wish you well, but you really ought to look for someone who actually supports you, mr. president, because i don't. he didn't do that. instead he was inside the administration. >> laura: you think he took the job to put a monkey wrench -- >> yes, look at the people he appointed all over the pentagon. these were people from the left. they were obama people. some going back to bush but mostly obama.
>> laura: why the bad staff decision? we had jeff sessions on and i still like him. but he was not the right pick obviously for doj. mattis stabs the president in the back in this tell-all. >> i think part of the issue is that the president is kind of caught up in the stars on the shoulders. >> laura: mad dog mattis. >> i don't think that he believed he would do anything to subvert him. the stars in the eyes. >> laura: i want to talk about mattis's own credibilitibility. -- credibility. let's put up this excerpt:
>> laura: oh, it sounds like a bad obama speech. which has america not know divided accept for 5 minutes after 9-11 and the world war ii parade. >> first of all welcome to a republic. this is the way we do business. secondly, he is trying to shift the blame for the obvious divisiveness we are dealing with to the current president. these things were there when he became president. we are dealing with decades. legacies of previous administration especially the obama administration. >> laura: and why he believed we the trouble we had in the meefth and the wars. let's this.
let's put up the full screen of what all of these wars cost: that's not enough for jim mattis. he thinks we should have doubled it and things would have worked out. the christians will still have their place in mosul. iran would not have pointed those devices our guys stepped on. >> normally failed generals point to troops. i didn't have enough soldiers. this is the first time i have ever heard a general officer say i didn't have enough money. if you look at what happened with rumsfeld became the secretary of defense.
rumsfeld and bush told the generals can have as much money as you want. what i can't provide you is hundreds of thousands of additional troops. we don't have them to send. where does this come from? if anything he had too much money. thoughts a huge part of the problem for us. we had too many people in the military swimming in oceans of cash. you don't have to make hard decisions. >> laura: they were passing out cash from wheelbarrows in baghdad. this was insanity looking back on it. now he wants to blame shift and get us up to the point where donald trump is the problem? trump was elected after 8 years of a failed obama administration followed by the last 4 years of the bush administration where the public turned against these wars. >> that's the bottom line.
talking about money. shifting blame from what was their failure. it was the plans and he was trying to accomplish the unattainable with military force and blaming somebody else. president trump was saying this was an unwinnable situation. we need to get out. >> laura: they want to go back to the bush administration. they think it will be happy times going back to 2004. they are in a time warp and think it's 2004. they never emerged from it. it's like a time machine and they are stuck on 2004. >> two problems. the generals are accustomed to no accountability and secondly what have these people done? >> laura: we are still in afghanistan. great to see both of you. thanks for joining us tonight. coming up raymond arroyo is here with a unique friday's follies.

it's heading for the east coast of the florida. but some forecasters say it might avoid a direct hit. the national hurricane center say some models have it turning to the right and hugging the coast there. governor ron desantis is urging florida to closely monitor hurricane dorian. people need to comply with mandatory evacuations. long lines at gas stations were the order of the day. lots of reports of stations running out of gas and people were stocking up on water and flashlights and generators. now back to "the ingraham angle." >> laura: it's friday and time for friday's follies. robotic clergy. a dave chappelle boycott and
nude stories making headlines. joining us is raymond arroyo. i thought we should call this segment the week in nudes. a lot of naked people out in the news. what is going on? >> well, what i think is going on we as a society lost all sense of same in some areas and act like purit ans in anothers. in philadelphia 3,000 naked enthusists, took part in a naked bike ride to promote positive body image and protesting dependence on fossil also. >> a lot of people don't understand social nudity. >> they dangled and flopped for 10 miles on those bikes.
what does this have to do with fossil fuels? >> laura: you are carbon neutral when you are biking. >> do you have to be naked to do it? >> laura: that's a good point. you better haven't any pot holes. it's hard enough biking on the streets in d.c. now with no clothes on? no thanks. >> what happened to public decency laws. i thought you could not flash everything. you have people look good and body paint doesn't help. this guy was naked in colorado over the weekend. this is fascinating. he is a 29-year-old man. it could have been drug related from new mexico. climbed a 150 foot power line to youer and -- tower. he was carrying his boxer
shorts. and in florida, i am not making these headlines up. these are all honest headlines. a teacher is fighting to get his job back after a neighbor videotaped him mowing his lawn in the nude. why would do you this? the weed whacker has to hurt. that's the week in nudes. >> laura: we were talking about comedian dave chappelle's new netflix special called "sticks and stones," and you predicted this. publications say you can skip this new netflix special. a lot of negativity. what is going on? >> this goes back to having a high tolerance for nude displays and sexual acting out. but speech is contracting. chappelle is being called a
misogynyist and he is taking on culture sacred cows. >> hey. if you do anything wrong, and i find out about it, i will try to take everything away from you. i don't care what i find out. it could be today or tomorrow or 15 or 20 years from now. you are [bleep]. >> he is right. he also addressed his critics. >> the rule is no matter what you do in your artistic expression, you are never, ever allowed to upset the alphabet people. the l band g's. >> he is catching hell for this. but this is a comedian. time was comedy was used to
bridge differences and bring people together. >> laura: you can make fun of trump or christians or ridicule nuns and the pope. but now he is liberal so they like him. you can ridicule a certain group of people. other people you may never speak about me. comedy is we all rip on each other. it's in good fun. i find this to be a disturbing trend. we don't want people to be mean spirited. no reason for that. jerry seinfeld said he won't do college campuses. >> chappelle is investigating in sophisticated social commentary. >> i am not for abortion. ladies, to be fair to us, i also believe if you decide to have the baby, the man should not
have to pay. >> [cheers and applause]. >> that's fair. if you can get this [bleep], i can at least abandon him. my money and my choice. if i am wrong perhaps we are wrong. [bleep]. >> laura: that is very sophisticated. >> my prediction: this will be the most watched netflix comedy special yet. i want to introduce you to the first clergy robot. the multi-million dollars buddhist priest is the centerpiece of a japanese temple. he recites sermons. though he hasn't yet interact, that could come in time. he has a wall behind that punctuates the sermon like
justin timberlake singing. are you ready for father roboto on sunday? >> laura: i love my parish priest. i go to two. they are great priests. you and i have heard our share of lame sermons. they don't want to be there. that robot would probably be perhaps more lively than some of the god bless them member of the clergy. >> maybe they could replace a few deacons. >> laura: stay right. there more of raymond next. traveling to the homeless encampments outside of l.a. in a visit to mayor pete's hometown next.
so today i made a plan with my doctor, which includes preservision. because it's my vision, my morning walk, my sunday drive, my grandson's beautiful face. only preservision areds 2 contains the exact nutrient formula recommended by the national eye institute to help reduce the risk of moderate to advanced amd progression. because it's my sunset, it's how i see my life. it's my vision. preservision

>> laura: raymond arroyo has been all over the country talking to every day americans and the important issues facing their communities. there was so much great material. we only have a limited amount of time. we were not able to get to it all. tonight lucky you, we are showing you the unseen footage from raymond on the road. first up, what you did not see from last night's report on the
homeless crisis in venice beach, california. >> tell me about these planters that were not here a year and a half. you put these in? >> you had the problem of them coming on to your property to use them as a toilet and a problem of breakins to the property and the carc. we made all of these calls to the cops. in one meeting, the patrol captain, and the senior lead officer and the deputy said if you put in planter boxes, they can't set up tents. we will enforce the no blocking the sidewalk law. they will leave. all of the resident s came with the shovels and filled these up and volunteered all of the plants and planted them. until the city with figure out a way to house all of these people. there needs to be a 300 foot
buffer where you can set up a tent. public spaces have been taken over by campers and by homeless up and down the boardwalk. none of the laws are being enforced. everyone is supposed to leave at 12 o'clock at night. all of the stuff is supposed to come out. >> there are 15,000 homeless people on the streets of l.a. county. there is a proposal to build a facility for them in venice. why are you opposed to that? >> the only reason they are doing it in the middle of a residential neighborhood is the mtan owns the cite. that's not a good reason -- cite. cite. we know this will invite more
people. you will find lines of school buses filled with homeless people who spend time evading local restrictions on where they should park or not. >> do you consider yourself homeless? >> no, i am not homeless. i consider myself here. >> are you upset the local government is not helping you more? >> no, it makes my life more interesting. like a challenge. >> to evade the authorities? >> yeah! if they helped me, i would be like, i would be like what is my point in life? i can't do anything. >> ♪ >> it was reported that mayor pete cut down your drug and traffic bureaus? why given the crimes we are seeing? >> sure. to my knowledge, we have one officer that does traffic enforcement. >> one? >> we have six officers in our
drug investigation unit that only focus on heroin related overdoses. we are approaching as bad as it was in the mid '90s. we are understaffed. at 220 working officers. 19 per shift. that's not enough. we can't police this entire city with 19 officers. >> the retention of black officers dropped by half? why and is the mayor responsible for that? >> sure. there is a national crisis hiring minority officers. i believe that started just 4 or 5 years ago when nationally police were held as villains of some sort. if i were a minority, i don't know that i would want to be a police officer here. any minority and i spoke to several on our police department, gets called all kind of names and traitors for doing the job they are doing. the job they want to do and love. >> tell me about the homeless
problem you are having here. >> they are all over the city. people holding signs. people sleeping and defecating all over the place. >> to have a tent city behind a business park. >> we have 9% of our population is unemployed. 25% live below the property level. these are their options. >> laura: special thanks to raymond and our great producers for that excellent work and reporting. coming up. putting president trump's second chance hiring initiative to work. "the ingraham angle" exclusive inside an indiana prison for women. the front lines of the criminal justice reform movement. no more lugging your clubs through the airport or risk having your clubs lost or damaged by the airlines. sending your own clubs ahead with shipsticks.com makes it fast & easy to get to your golf destination.
>> too often inmates are not considered for jobs even in they are rehabilitated and ready to work. we are taking crucial steps to encourage businesses to expand second chance hiring practices. >> [applauding]. >> laura: of course the mainstream media did not highlight that effort. that was the president back in june announcing a new criminal justice reform initiative called
the second chance act. the goal is to get businesses to train inmates behind bars so when they get out, they have a job. everybody wins. but one man has already made it his mission to make sure prisoners have a second chance. i found out about this sometime ago. i wanted to bring this story to you for a while now. this is called the last mile program. it teams up tech leaders with con60s. it teaches them computer coding. this week "the ingraham angle" got exclusive access to the first-class to graduate in indiana. a preview. >> a huge amount of people in prison need a second chance. over 90% of people are getting out. we have to think about who we want them to be when they get out. so, that's really part of it, i didn't really start this -- when i did this with beverly. it wasn't started to change
stereotypes. what i saw was this idea of hope. within the first month of starting the program, one of the guys came up to me and said if i never get a job, it's okay. you are treating me like a human being for the first time i am being treated like that for someone from outside. we are trying to do educate and prepare people to be successful. people that are not in prison make mistakes too. is that zero going to happen forever? that's our goal. we will reduce recidicism and that will reduce spending by billion dollars. they look at zero percent and none of the people who are out want to be the first one. it takes the onus from me and
they want to support their community. >> you four and many others all over the state of indiana are proving that indiana is a state that works for all. congratulations. i can't wait. the best is yet to come. >> whie need to remember they a just people. everybody is one bad choice away from incarceration. i know my success will have a huge impact on the women coming in, in the future. i am in the pilot program. all eyes are on the people in the pilot program to see if they succeed. is this zero percent recidivism rate? it's important to me to be successful so they know they can be successful too and number two, so the society knows these promise are worth investing in. >> that's the only way to rehabilitate people, is give them an opportunity.
if you put people in prison and don't give them any opportunity to succeed, they won't succeed because they don't know how. we need an example. with that i am glad to be a role model. >> some of the folks incarcerated for years to come going through this program are the ones having a huge positive influence. >> laura: why? knowing it's such a long time before they get out but they show up day after day? why? >> maybe life's true purpose is being revealed to them too. they are part of this bigger notion of what are we doing for our neighbor? our neighbor is close by. our neighbor comes from a much different place than us. some of these folks did not have a first chance let alone a second chance. if you are serious about helping them, in turn, help others through the process. then get involved. >> laura: final thoughts when we come back. now's your chance to save big on america's favorite boats
>> shannon: what a week we've had, can you believe it? the report comes out and find out what our former f.b.i. director with you really capable of in his quest to remove donald trump from the presidency and we're going to learn more in the coming weeks and months. we have to hold our government responsible. yeah, republicans and democrats, and we can all do it together. it doesn't have to be a blood sport of every minute of every day. this is for our kids, our future an always preserving our freedom and all of you workers out there, it's never been a better time to be a worker in the united states of america. if you want a job, you'll get a job. and we have a lot of great businesses out there. we've got to salute you, too, giving workers first chances, second chances, third chances. some senior workers are coming back. it's all good. everybody, fly your flag if you can overnight weekend.
have great labor day weekend. stay safe our friends in florida. it looks like it will be a bad storm. we're praying for you. don't take any chances. have a great weekend. >> shannon: this is a fox news alert. hurricane dorian strengthens to an extremely dangerous category four storm and it's threatening first the bahamas with huge triple overhead storm surge and then potentially nearly the entire state of florida. some are playing politics with the storm tonight as the president vows we're ready. in minutes you'll hear from a pilot who is preparing to fly into the heart of the storm to get data that will help forecasters. he's live with us and huge breaking news from california. acquitted of homicide charges after admitting he fired the gun that killed her, wraps up another legal victory and appeals court tossing his conviction in the charges against
